Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life.
My Beloved mom,
You were an emanation of buddha nature in my eyes of form
Through 'over one half of a century' of my very existence
You were the living norm!
Your passing away,
fourteen years ago, on November 25, 2000,
realistically I look upon, as a transformation, in kind,
to another guise!
While mind alone is an indestructible continuum
mind-body processes arise, prevail, and decline, towards demise
for re-appearance, through eternal time!
This, I have come to realize, is the way of life!
We cannot hold on to impermanence, that is ephemeral and futile!
The 'self' we know is 'without self' - the truth divine!
Thus I do not mourn over your loss, my mother
Mourning is to no avail!
I have never really lost you, other than our known connection
through a familiar appearance, that once prevailed!
For I now know there is neither birth, nor death, to prevail
other than the energy of mind
spiraling along many directions, in continuum, to say
assuming different forms as 'mind-body processes'
to learn all lessons to perfection
until all attachments to low matter are dispelled!
Having said all of the above,
You were the most beloved and revered wife
to my wondrous and unsurpassable father!
You conceived me and my two precious brothers
with the blessings of your heart, abundant with LOVE, eternal.
You bestowed upon your grand children
strength, security, and the wisdom of nature!
You illuminated the lives of all who met you,
whether by chance, or not,
yet with fervor!
Your physical presence was everyone's treasure
abounded with virtues beyond measure.
You lived to give knowledge
grounded upon the cosmic moral order
through sixty eight grand years,
of eighty five years of your existence!
Selflessness, most candidly expressed, was your very nature.
Those who were fortunate enough to cross your path
- from the four corners of this Earth -
will surely attest to having had the experience
of your peacefully resolute demeanor
that epitomized vigor, valor, and candor
to execute your purpose in life
through each breath, and each step forward!
Yes, the children of the Earth for generations to come
shall savor the benefits of your LOVE!
For the incessant ripple effects of happy continuation
shall perpetuate the seeds,
to grow the fruits of your lasting COMPASSION!
Yes, of course, I, along with my siblings, husband, and children
not forgetting all those who look upon you, with reverence,
shall hold you as our idol, in our hearts of surrender!
May you through the infinite expanses of time and space
cross our paths to touch our lives, again and again,
until we are liberated from all conditionings!
I am your most affectionate daughter,
Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
